Dennis Nolan – Repeat Sex Offender He was searching for a victim

Conviction date: 7/12/1999
Attempted Sexual Abuse-1st Degree
Offender’s age at conviction: 42
Victim Age: 10

A Level 3 sex offender who was quizzed by Skaneateles police after he was reported watching children in a park through binoculars has been arrested by Syracuse police.

Dennis Nolan, 51, was accused of failing to register his address with local authorities as required by law. He is being held without bail at the Onondaga County Justice Center.

Nolan was picked up on a warrant issued Aug. 19, said Sgt. Tom Connellan, speaking for Syracuse police. Nolan failed to register his address every 90 days, Connellan said.

Nolan was taken into custody Wednesday, Connellan said.

Nolan served time after a 1999 conviction for first-degree attempted sexual abuse in an incident involving a 10-year-old boy, according to the state. A Level 3 sex offender is one the court determined to be a high risk of committing another sex crime.

Neighbors of Austin Park in Skaneateles had noticed him for several days parked near the playground.

Skaneateles police talked to Nolan on Aug. 5 but could do nothing but ask him to move on, police Chief H. Lloyd Perkins said.
